and I do believe I'm ready for it. I'm feeling the need for Autumn nesting coming on - the need to ready the house for the long cold days and nights of winter - which can stay away for quite awhile thank you very much. But seeing the first golden leaves of summer starting to turn and fall always brings on a comfort/cozy feeling to me. Beautiful nights like this - watching the sun go down wrapped in a sweatshirt - seriously does it get better than that
I have to admit I've been a lurker in blogland as of late, stopping by for visits without announcing that I've been there. It's been fun to see what everyone has been up to and how others are feeling the call of Autumn as well. I must admit tonight tho when visiting some blogs I left feeling happy for them and progresses that they are making, enjoying what they have to say and share and wondering how do they get so much done. I leave feeling a bit jealous and inadequate over my lack of doing the same. There just never seems to be enough time in the day to get it all accomplished does there. I know I'm not alone in that and I know those people I'm secretly jealous of are feeling the same way, not reaching those goals that they have, it's all relative for everyone. I've been pondering time a lot lately - how to make the most of it - how to accomplish what's important to me and my family and how to get back to those things that have some how been squeezed out over time - those things that make me tick, that make me happy, that make me who I am. Have I had any grand epiphany about this, any BIG light bulb moment, no - but I do know that changes in the future need to happen. I've been reminded this year on how precious our time on this great planet is - so that we shouldn't waste our spin around the sun - make it count. So I ponder this and make my plan, make my strategy. It will never be perfect, always a work in progress - but it can be better. It's that key word, that tricky one called balance that we all strive for. Total balance will never happen, I'm not sure it could. But in my case, it's the little things that have slipped away that I miss - how and when it happened, no clue, but I do see them in the near future. I've seen a few ideas out there in bloggy world that I would like to try and I'll share that journey with you when it happens. This is by no means a post of whining or a pitty party - it's been a slow realization that I'm missing things that were and still are important for me :) and I need to bring them back into my life.
On a lighter note - I did spend sometime in the sewing room the other morning and it felt wonderful - putting together fabrics for a project
can you see who's asleep on the back of the chair enjoying that morning sun - that little doxie knows how to leave stress behind, lol.
So on that note I'll sign off - I'll be back to share the sisterhood get together - that was a great day.
Until Next Time
